A downloadable game for Windows

Critter is a challenging physics-puzzle game where each player controls a separate tentacle of a little organism that somehow got lost in space.

The game can be played by up to 2 players using keyboard only, or by up to 4 players using a combination of keyboard and controllers. Current supported controllers are XBox 360 and XBox One, although some generic controllers may also work.

All keys/required inputs are shown where needed - Simply "pause" the game to see in-game controls per player.

Please note that currently the game is still in early development, and that any game elements like graphics, sound, and gameplay are subject to change.

The use of controllers is preferred, and this game is being developed with consoles in mind - please take note that keyboard control has been added to the prototype for testing purposes only.
